Growing up, my parents would often dress my sister and me in identical dresses. This may be acceptable for twins, but we are three years apart. Not cool. However, this doesn’t mean I am opposed to the idea of matching. I actually love it. In fact, my husband and I usually try to wear similar colors when we go out to a special event or simply to explore the city together. Some may think it’s a bit strange, but we like to have fun with our outfits and create a subtle difference that still unites us in some way. Now that we’ve been married, style becomes more about looking good together, not so much for ourselves. Although, there are still occasions when I like to dress up and go out with the girls! Don’t get me wrong. This fun tradition of matching continues with Madelyn June!
Madelyn is wearing a striped summer dress (love how this can still be worn in the wintertime!) from Gymboree that makes her look like a delicately layered fruit and sponge cake cutie pie! I am wearing a simple black and tan striped long dress that allows MJ’s dress to really shine when I hold her next to me. Madelyn’s dress is playful while mine is more sophisticated, but we still match with the stripes! Mission accomplished.
